Love and Bananas

Ashley Bell and a team of elephant rescuers, led by world-renowned elephant conversationalist Lek Chailert, embark on a daring 48-hour mission across Thailand to rescue a captive Asian elephant from a trekking camp and set her free. As the documentary unfolds the audience learns that there’s no need to abuse an elephant to control it, you can motivate an elephant to follow your lead simply with love and bananas. Love & Bananas will hopefully provide a solution to keeping this species alive.


Q&A – Ashley Bell (Director, writer, producer), John McCarthy (Writer, producer, editor), Roddy Tabatabai (Director of photography), David Casselman (Executive Producer and Founder of the Cambodia Wildlife Sanctuary)
